1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Pictures I found on the web enjoy! on: January 21, 2015, 07:03:01 AM
The Pace car pic has some interesting things in it (if you can tear you eyes away from the candy Smiley).  The D90 stripe appears to be wavy from the factory, when the side decal (I assume a decal instead pf paint because of the rippling above the rear wheel well) was installed, they followed the wave on the front fender, which really highlighted the wave.  CB antenna mount on the trunk lid, trim rings with dog dish wheels.  And what is that black tape thing on the peak of the hood? a wind string?

2 blondes, a redhead and a brunette, the marketing dept was working it! Smiley

Looks like a starter brace and solenoid wiring holder

I used water proofed denim material to reface mine. The are attached to a metal edge behind the fuzzy strip (when looking from inside the car), by 2 small flat head phillips sheet metal screws. There should be one near exterior door handle and one forward.  There will be two plastic bumps attached to window glass that ride against these, measure where those are to get the location on the door.

What is up with that rear spring mount???  The spring mounts are deep multis as well as the multi shock plate, they are all correct, but it looks like they left old spring pads or spacers in there.  why would they do that? If they mounted them correctly, it would raised the rear up to a more proper level.  And of course the upside down cowl seal, tsk.

Subscribing to this as well. since XN is drum only (I have 4 XN on my car) is a limited market.  I would assume the dates matter since keeping the 4 drum system really only happens for a numbers matching car.

Yup, that is what I used as well.  Take a hunk, knead it until soft, press it in Smiley

http://www.camaros.org/exterior.shtml#1969Grille  It should be a black grill with black bezels for a 69 SS. Since it is an X66 (no style trim), they would NOT have the chrome ring on the bezels.
ALL 69 SS's have bright headlamp trimmed bezels.
http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#XnnCodes
This report states that the X55 and X66 carry the same features in regards to headlamp bezels...
My P&A has a note for the bezels (painted)
Does anyone have a part number for black bezels or were they all manufactured in Grey and paint as required?

Thanks, yes, I see that now, confusing! Smiley thx

You could order Rally wheels on any model Camaro.  If you did not order any optional wheels or hubcaps, you got the base steel wheel.  In the case of an SS, it would be the 14x7 XT painted steel wheel with dog dish habcaps.

Cant say for sure, but it did show heating marks (like a torch), so I would guess a press of some sort plus some heat. They said sometimes a spring could break in the process, so I collected a couple sets, but the first set came out fine. $1 a lb, so it was around $55.  I figured it was a cheap enough gamble even if it only lasted a short time, but they are still going strong!

Mike, the tapered spring is not reproed IFAIK. The Eaton mono is just straight sides.  I was able to have my factory springs re-arched successfully at a truck spring shop.  Been 5 years now and they may have settled 1/2" since, I had them re-arched 1.5" over stock. I will get a spare set re-arched soon for backup Smiley

Glad you guys confirmed that I was not imagining the silver paint on the center of the grill! Cheesy
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: September 19, 2014, 09:58:11 PM
Hmm, then it must have been painted later in its life.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: September 19, 2014, 01:46:14 PM
Mark, I did notice the center of my grill was silver as opposed to the plastic grey look of the grill.  I would have thought the factory painted the silver (no mask), then masked the center and sprayed the body?

Thanks Kevin for posting that pic...Did you find any signs of it being mask off on the back side to keep from getting on the argent? I would guess the amount of overspray would vary as well?

I don't recall looking for that kinda evidence Smiley but the back was not painted with silver, only from the front, so the back edges did not have silver.  It appeared to be painted on a rack facing front and the body color being painted to cover the outside edges that show. That is where the overspray came from. There was little overspray on the bottom of the grill.
